The Throttle Throbs Car Club brought their 2014 season to a close with their Fall Fling show at the Greenbrier Valley Mall. 2014 was a good year for the club. They raised enough money to continue their scholarship program in memory of Greg Carter, a Greenbrier Valley County Fireman that lost his life in the line of duty. Two scholarships will be awarded to Greenbrier East High School and two scholarships to Greenbrier West High School. This will give the club a total of 60 scholarships awarded with a total of $55,500 over the past 16 years.
The club sponsors and show participants made the Fall Fling show a success. Bonnie Tincher of Maxwelton received the Martin Family Best Import trophy. She had a 1953 London Roadster. Ray Adkins of Prosperity received the Jim Phares Participants Choice trophy. He had a 1951 Chevrolet. Gary McDaniels of Crawley received the Greenbrier Motors Best MOPAR trophy. He had a 1971 Dodge Dart. Willie Cochran of Covington, VA received the Alice & Tony Tatakis Best Truck trophy. He had a 1970 Chevrolet C-10. DJ White of Maxwelton received the Best Street Rod trophy. Colby and Marcus Crookshanks of Caldwell received the Best Other trophy with a souped up carriage.
The Throttle Throbs car club thanks all who participated by entering their automobiles, sponsored trophies or made donations, attended as spectators and, as always, our loyal and dedicated club members.
